Fountain Friday

Hochstrahlbrunnen Fountain at Schwarzenbergplatz
Vienna, Austria

Vienna was not one of the favorite cities I visited when I went to Europe, for a number of reasons. This fountain, however, has stuck in my head. Another one that was very loud with a cold spray, but so regal and memorable. It's located with, but not considered a part of, a controversial monument to the Red Army. But the fountain was built in 1873 to celebrate the first water pipeline from the Alps to Vienna. What better way to celebrate water than with a fountain.
